CHAPTER ONE ~ Definition of Patience Title_zps9ec69df1



Chapter One
Definition of Patience

The Arabic word Sabr  means restriction and detention. In Islam, it means to prevent one’s soul from reaching the point of despair and panic, and to refrain from tearing one’s clothes out of grief. It is a classical word mentioned in the Glorious Quran, the Hadith, and the Arab poetry. In the Glorious Quran, we read,

{ And keep yourself content with those who call on their Lord morning and evening, seeking His face.}

(Al-Kahf: 28)
In a hadith concerning two people, one of whom held a man to be killed by the other, the Prophet (pbuh) said,
“The killer must be killed and the Sabir must be put into Sabr.”


The meaning is that who detained the man and let the other kill him must suffer the same punishment.
   There is also an Arabic expression that reads: So-and-so was killed by Sabr, i.e., he was held captive and detained until he died.
Al-Bukhari reported on the authority of Anas Ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) that “the Prophet (pbuh) forbids the flesh of the livestock which was put into Sabr, “i.e, it is unlawful to eat the flesh of a goat or a hen etc. which died while detained.
